Individual Orange Cake

Oops. Sorry I misspelled orange in the title there. Editor won't let me correct it.

I just had to try out my new little heart-shaped baking dish I found today. Decided on an Individual Orange Cake I iced with my cream cheese frosting with 2-3 T. whipped cream stirred into it. Came out real good. My husband liked this one a lot. Very rich orange taste.

Cool. I made this recipe from Ousie's Super Low Cal/Carb recipe (tweaked of course, cuz like you, I can't resist tweaking) and did mine lemon flavored. Only I cut it into 3 layers and filled each layer with Char's lemon curd that I made into a mousse and then iced with cream cheese/butter cream frosting and topped with a couple of blackberries.

Was beautiful and refreshing. Don't you just love how adaptable these individual muffin/cake recipes are?!!

And thanks to the original creators for their awesome brainchilds that can be tweaked to no end!!!

Guess I'm not familiar with Ousie? A member here? A recipe website?

Yes, I love making these mini-versions. I did a lemon one like you described also last night. It rose above the top of the small square dish by 1"!!! Definitely have to use a larger dish next time. LOL So I made it into a lemon layer cake "tower", cut into 4 layers and iced betseen the layers and outside with a lemon cream cheese frosting. Hubby ate all that one for his dessert last night. I did have a taste though. This is what it looked like when sliced in half:

These look great! I am going to have to buy extracts to make these. Just one question. Have you tried to bake these? If so, what temp and how long?

I only do this recipe in the microwave, LiRoGe, so I wouldn't know. I think oven-baking just might dry this out, personally. Suppose you could try at 350º for maybe 15 minutes. Pure guess there, really no idea on time, as that would depend on the shape of the pan you used.

Thanks Esther. Yes, I love lemon curd too, Pooti, which I can see in a lemon cake application. Mmm.

These little MW mini cakes are so nice when I want a QUICK dessert and only want 1-2 servings for me and DH with no tempting leftovers. I try to keep batches of lemon, lime, and orange cream cheese frostings made up in a 3-compartment plastic container I have so that's handy too. It only takes a dab of frosting (I don't like much frosting) for one of these small cakes, so a batch of frosting made up and on hand lasts me quite awhile.

INDIVIDUAL ORANGE CAKE
by Buttoni

INGREDIENTS:

1 T. melted butter, unsalted
2 eggs, beaten
1/8 tsp. Boyajian Orange Citrus oil (or ¼ tsp. orange extract)
1 tsp. grated orange zest
2 T. golden flax meal
2 T. almond flour
2 tsp. oat fiber
6 drops liquid Splenda
2 pkts. stevia sweetener
½ tsp. baking powder

DIRECTIONS: In a 4″ ramekin or 5″ glass baking dish, melt the butter in a microwave for 30 seconds. Beat in the egg, liquid Splenda and Boyajian orange oil. Add orange zest and stir again. Now add dry ingredients and stir until batter is smooth. Microwave on HI for about 1 minute 20 seconds or until done in the center. Cool a minute and using a knife tip, gently loosen and tip out onto plate. Slice and serve or frost if desired. This is good with my orange cream cheese frosting with a couple tablespoons of whipped cream blended in.

OPTIONAL FROSTING: 4 oz. cream cheese, liquid Splenda to taste (5-6 drops), 1 tsp. orange zest, 1 T. juice of orange and 1 drop each yellow and red food coloring. This adds approximately .5 Net Carb per tablespoon to the per serving numbers below.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 2 servings with each containing: (this does not include the frosting)
